    Check it out: We won a 2014 Good Food Award!
    We were honored to be finalists last year, and even more thrilled to be finalists again this year. So imagine our excitement when we received the news that we had actually won such a prestigious award! (If you can't imagine our excitement, let's just say that there was a lot of "happy dancing".

Happy #NationalHandwritingDay! The holdings ...

Happy #NationalHandwritingDay! The holdings of the National Archives are brimming with hand-written records like this document, the Deposition of John Snyder. This document is the sworn statement of John Snyder regarding the events surrounding the assault of Garrik Hulsecamp by Ezikiel Teel. It comes from a criminal case file which consists of assault and battery charges brought against Ezekiel Teel for his alleged assault of a man by the name of Garrett Hulsecamp on his ship in October of 1790. You can learn more about this case, and see the handwriting up close, by visiting our online catalog: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/18545806. We know that last week’s Citizen Archivist Challenge is over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue the important work of unlocking history by transcribing and tagging our records! If you haven’t already, get started by visiting the Citizen Archivist Dashboard (https://www.archives.gov/citizen-archivist) to learn how to start and to find specific missions. Want to learn more about our holdings? You can check out our online catalog (www.catalog.archives.gov) and make an appointment to view our holdings at the National Archives at Philadelphia by calling (215) 305-2044 or emailing philadelphia.archives@nara.gov. Today's post was written by Grace Schultz, Archives Technician at the National Archives at Philadelphia.

    Frankenstein, performed by Going Dark Theatre
    "A Frankenstein with the Hollywood additions scraped off, one that began in the Arctic wastes, revealed the self-deluded nature of Victor's ambitions, and presented the Creature with horror and unalloyed sympathy. I cannot be the only person to leave the evening determined to reread Mary Shelley's masterpiece as soon as possible .

    Philadelphia Struggles to Balance Historic Preservation and Equity
    As Jared Brey points out, there's been little perceived need to protect existing structures in a city that's been desperate for development for decades. Now, that may be changing, but making sure historic preservation respects communities of color and does not become a tool of gentrification remains a challenge.

"The story is related by the Narrator, a grownup version of the misguided Youth, with a distinct sense of irony... and a kinetic, eclectic score that ranges from gospel to punk rock." - The Philadelphia Inquirer

    'Passing Strange' at the Wilma: Updated, rocking tale of Youth's quest for identity
    Stew and Heidi Rodewald's "Passing Strange" at the Wilma Theater tells an often-told tale: The self-glorifying, distinctly unheroic artist-hero questing for his identity through changes of scene, sexual encounters that stop short of love, and the supposedly redemptive act of creation.
